British Bank Selects Pricing Partners for the Independent Valuation of One of its Most Challenging Equity Structured Products

Pricing Partners announced today that one of the largest British banks has selected Price-it Online, Pricing Partners’ independent valuation platform, for the valuation on an advanced equity structured product that is both path dependent and American style, as well as contingent to a large quantity of shares.

In accordance with the best practices in the sector, this bank, which is one of the largest British banks and therefore wishes to remain anonymous, was looking for a reliable and recognised solution to provide a fair and accurate valuation on its structured product “Callable Putable Captain”. The valuation of this note is very challenging as it is a medium-long term product (eight years) and provides a capped and floored arithmetic average on the yearly return of a sum of 20 shares, additionally callable and putable after the 6th year. After an assessment of the available solutions, the bank chose Price-it Online, Pricing Partners’ online platform, because of the accuracy of its valuations and its strong expertise in the field of valuation on OTC derivatives.

Eric Benhamou, CEO of Pricing Partners, comments: “This prestigious British bank is a key reference for us, meanwhile, a reward for our professionalism and our valuation service quality. We feel very proud and grateful for the confidence it reflects on our team. With this new client reference, we take an important step forward towards even greater recognition for our pricing models, our tools and our independent valuation platform. Hereby, we are underway to becoming the leading player in the field of transparency on the financial derivatives and structured products.”
